Giving Just Got a Whole Lot Better!
Announcing Birdies for Kids Presented by AltaLink!
We are excited to announce that McMan Calgary & Area is teaming up with Shaw Birdies for Kids presented by AltaLink once again. From now through to August 31st, all donations made toward our mental health and wellness services for youth will be matched up to 50%!
Did you know a $1000 donation provides 24 hours of group-based mental health care to a youth in need?
Our mental health and wellness groups make a big difference. A recent follow up survey with participants from our Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) Skills Training groups for youth demonstrated the following impact at 3 months post-group completion:
- 84% reported improvement in their mental health;
- 76% used the skills learned in group at least once a week;
- 100% felt the skills helped them better manage the stress of the pandemic; and
- 70% felt their relationships had improved.
“I feel like everyone can walk away with one skill and say this is how I can use this tomorrow or next week for my next challenging emotional experience.” ~ DBT Skills Training group alumni
Through Birdies for Kids Presented by AltaLink, your gift will go even further to improve mental health and wellness of youth in our community.
